The Character Deficit
By Steve McCan"
American Thinker

When the framers of the United States Constitution completed their work in 1787, they acknowledged that the success and future of the republic as established by that document was dependent on the honor and integrity of its leaders and citizens. As John Adams wrote: 'Our Constitution was made for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.'

Today, the Obama administration, the majority of the members of Congress, much of the Judiciary, academia, and the media represent the culmination of the degradation of ethics and character, which has put the United States in the nearly inevitable position of joining the annals of the rise and fall of great nations...

The seizure and preservation of power was made possible by promising the American people economic security in exchange for their votes. Society and government thus began the long, steady process of compromising the age-old standards of ethics, honesty, and integrity, which are based on Judeo-Christian teachings...

In the field of education, it became a requisite to teach that there are no absolutes and no moral or ethical guidelines except to do whatever makes one 'happy...

The mainstream media, once the watchdog of government wrongdoing, has been captured by ideology, lifestyle, and the need for celebrity status...

To all these groups, truth and facts have become casualties replaced by outright lies or obfuscations euphemistically referred to as 'spin.' This gradual degradation of integrity and ethical standards has allowed for the acceptance of a philosophy espoused by despots throughout history, one that forms the underpinning of the character of President Obama, his administration, a majority in Congress, and an unfortunate plurality among the general public...

Such people must be willing, as was President Obama, to lie to achieve their ends, like with the deliberate falsehoods, obfuscations, and manipulation of data that took place during the passage of health care and other legislation.

They must be willing to flout the rule of law and the Constitution, as President Obama did, in the takeover of General Motors, Chrysler, the banks, insurance companies, and the appointment of numerous 'czars' in avoidance of Congressional approval.

They must be willing to use the power of the government, as the president has done, to threaten, blackmail, and intimidate political and media critics, and to shake down private enterprise for support and financial contributions.

They must be willing through inconceivable but deliberate levels of deficit spending to place the country on a collision course with national bankruptcy, as President Obama is doing, in order to advance a radical agenda the citizens do not want or need...

The Jews Being Scapegoated Again?

Israel and the Surrender of the West

One of the world's oldest stories is playing out before our eyes: The Jews are being scapegoated again."

The most interesting voice in all the fallout surrounding the Gaza flotilla incident is that sanctimonious and meddling voice known as 'world opinion.' At every turn 'world opinion,' like a school marm, takes offense and condemns Israel for yet another infraction of the world's moral sensibility. And this voice has achieved an international political legitimacy so that even the silliest condemnation of Israel is an opportunity for self-congratulation.

Rock bands...canceling their summer tour stops in Israel... A demonstrator at an anti-Israel rally in New York carries a sign depicting the skull and crossbones drawn over the word 'Israel.' White House correspondent Helen Thomas, in one of the ugliest incarnations of this voice, calls on Jews to move back to Poland. And of course the United Nations and other international organizations smugly pass one condemnatory resolution after another against Israel while the Obama administration either joins in or demurs with a wink.

This is something new in the world, this almost complete segregation of Israel in the community of nations. And if Helen Thomas's remarks were pathetic and ugly, didn't they also point to the end game of this isolation effort: the nullification of Israel's legitimacy as a nation? There is a chilling familiarity in all this. One of the world's oldest stories is playing out before our eyes: The Jews are being scapegoated again."

'World opinion' labors mightily to make Israel look like South Africa looked in its apartheid era—...

Today the world puts its thumb on the scale for the Palestinians by demonizing the stronger and whiter Israel as essentially a colonial power committed to the 'occupation' of a beleaguered Third World people...

Obama, the Ungodly or an Implement of Divine Wrath?

The wrath of God is upon us because of Obama (the unGodly
Posted on June 9, 2010 by nobarack08
Nobarack08's Weblog

When the uneducated population in a sense hires an ungodly man to be their leader and that leader has done nothing but turn his back on God. God will not be mocked. No other recent political official has been touted as the next messiah...

...God surely is punishing this nation for turning our backs on him. We have allowed abortion, sexual deviancy, drug and alcohol abuse, the destruction of God’s divine provision of marriage and abolishment of the Ten Commandments...

Why do Obama, BP refuse to use most effective method of oil cleanup?

Conservative Examiner

As the Gulf oil disaster closes in on the 50-day mark, the Obama Administration and BP refuse to use the most effective method of oil cleanup. The top oil barons of the world--the Saudis--have used this method to avoid a mammoth oil disaster.

And the result was swift, effective, and conclusive.

In 1993 and '94 the Saudis faced an oil spill of historic proportions in the Arabian Gulf as four leaking tankers and two oil gushers threatened to spur a catastrophic event that was 65 times worse than the Exxon-Valdez spill.

An American engineer, Nick Pozzi, was part of a task force charged with developing a solution to the looming disaster.

Pozzi had used various methods to clean up oil spills prior to this event. However, the time was short, and an effective solution was needed post-haste.

That's when Pozzi decided that the huge, empty oil tankers, sitting in the dock, could be used to simply vacuum up the oil right off of the top of the water.

The result was that 85% of the oil was recovered.

Pozzi believes that the tanker method is the fastest and most effective way of dealing with the Gulf Oil disaster, but no one in the Obama Administration or BP is willing to consider the idea.

Instead, they have insisted on using untested techniques, one of which involves the use of chemical dispersants manufactured and sold by a company in which Obama cronies, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Hathaway-Berkshire, and BP, are heavily invested.

That company, NALCO, is also one of the so-called 'green' industries that Obama and the Leftwing favor due to its development of water purification systems.

In an interview with Esquire, Pozzi stated the following:...

However, Esquire also reported that nearly FIFTY (50) super-tankers were sitting empty and ready to go, and on the cheap (BP Oil Spill Cleanup Costs - How Much Will Supertankers Cost BP? - Esquire)
The Obama Administration and BP have totally ignored them.

In fact, BP has curiously skirted around the super-tanker solution when asked about it by reporters ...

Energy - Oil industry insider: Second, larger Gulf leak could be releasing huge amounts of oil
The Daily Crux

Matt Simmons')latest claims, laid out in a Bloomberg TV interview Friday (May 28) appear to be nothing short of sensational.

Matt Simmons says “Top Kill” is a sideshow, misses the big problem of a second leak 5 to 7 miles away releasing up to 120,000 barrels/day. Simmons goes on to say we might need nukes to seal the leak"

Today Matt Simmons, one of the largest investment bankers in the energy industry appeared on Bloomberg. The chairman of Simmons & Co. INTL went on to explain that there is much more to the oil leak than the news has been reporting. Last Sunday, NOAA confirmed reports of a second fissure about 5-7 miles from the original. This new fissure appears to be releasing a plume the size of Delaware and Maryland combined! He went on to state that “the plume from the riser is minor thing… the best estimate is about 120,000 barrels of oil per day”.

Simmons is quoted as saying, “Obama could remove BP today… tell BP it is time to leave”. Some questions were also brought up that pertained to a nuclear device and how the military could lower one 18,000 feet into the well bore.

Simmons went on to say ” Such techniques have been used by the Russians on several different occasions".

From all of the best scientists who have thought about this in the past few days, probably the only thing we can do is create a weapons system and send it down 18,000 feet, detonate it and hopefully case in the oil.

That we would even have discussions about setting of nuclear explosions in hope they would accomplish something is certainly not encouraging to say the least.

A day after scientists reported finding a huge “plume” of oil extending miles east of the leaking BP well, on Friday a Louisiana scientist said his crew had located another vast plume of oily globs, miles in the opposite direction.

James H. Cowan Jr., a professor at Louisiana State University, said his crew on Wednesday found a plume of oil in a section of the gulf 75 miles northwest of the source of the leak.

Cowan said that his crew sent a remotely controlled submarine into the water, and found it full of oily globules, from the size of a thumbnail to the size of a golf ball. Unlike the plume found east of the leak — in which the oil was so dissolved that contaminated water appeared clear — Cowan said the oil at this site was so thick that it covered the lights on the submarine.

It almost looks like big wet snowflakes, but they’re brown and black and oily,” Cowan said. The submarine returned to the surface entirely black, he said.

Cowan said that the submarine traveled about 400 feet down, close to the sea floor, and found oil all the way down. Trying to find the edges of the plume, he said the submarine traveled miles from side to side. “We really never found either end of it,” he said.

This discovery seems to confirm the fears of some scientists that — because of the depth of the leak and the heavy use of chemical “dispersants” — this spill was behaving differently than others. Instead of floating on top of the water, it may be moving beneath it.

Simmons went on the say scientist are now convinced the last majority of oil is below, and often well below, the surface. June 1 starts hurricane season and they worry that a hurricane coming aground in the Louisiana / Mississippi area could “push” all the below surface oil on the beaches and even inland ...

'The Last Pharaoh?

By Wyatt Ciesielka
Tuesday, June 01, 2010

You will soon become familiar with Tirhakah. He was a mighty Egyptian pharaoh – a historic King of the South embroiled in incessant war with a historic King of the North. Tirhakah will again become famous largely because Will Smith (of “Men in Black”, “Ali” and “Hitch” fame) intends to star in a movie “of epic proportions” about him. But students of prophecy should be interested in Tirhakah for other reasons.

Tirhakah was the celebrated last Pharaoh of the 25th Egyptian dynasty – the Ethiopian dynasty, ruling circa 689 to 664 B.C. Because his glory was unsurpassed by subsequent pharaohs, Tirhakah is inaccurately called “The Last Pharaoh.” However, Tantamani, and the famous Cleopatra were pharaohs after him. And, scripture predicts a final pharaoh immediately before Christ’s return.

The Bible in 2 Kings 19:9 and Isaiah 37:9 record that it was Tirhakah who unsuccessfully attempted to repel the Assyrian hosts threatening King Hezekiah. But, his story should be of interest to students of the Bible, because the Egypt of Tirhakah’s past holds clues to Egypt’s and the Middle East’s future.

Around 740 B.C. Tirhakah’s father, Piye, invaded Egypt. At the time of Piye’s invasion, Egypt had fragmented into eleven feuding states governed by rulers of Libyan descent. This was the time of the Twenty-Second Egyptian Dynasty (circa 945-730 B.C.). Piye conquered and unified Egypt. His son, Tirhakah, ascended to a unified and powerful throne – rivaled only by the mighty Assyrian empire.

Initially, Tirhakah repelled numerous invasions by Assyria’s King Esarhaddon. However, by 671 B.C. the Assyrians overwhelmed Tirhakah’s forces, and Egypt was pillaged. Eventually, the Assyrians drove Tirhakah out of Lower Egypt, and his kingdom collapsed in 667 B.C.

After Assyrian King Esarhaddon’s death, Tirhakah returned to Egypt and routed the Assyrians. However, his victory was short-lived. Esarhaddon’s son, Assurbanipal, promptly set out from Nineveh and devastated Tirhakah’s armies. Tirhakah would flee all the way to his homeland of Nubia, where he remained until he died. He was buried under a 150-foot-high pyramid in Nuri, located in modern-day Sudan.

What is the significance for modern times?

While Tirhakah is inaccurately called “The Last Pharaoh,” scripture foretells a future pharaoh over Egypt (Isaiah 30:2-3). Scripture also foretells a future king who will rule over the consolidated peoples of Egypt, Ethiopia, Sudan and much of the rest of the Middle East.

Tomorrow’s World has often referenced the prophetic passage of Isaiah 30:13, which indicates that modern Jacob’s fall will come suddenly, like “a bulge in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, in an instant.” This same prophetic passage shows Egypt as a leading power during this time (vv. 2, 3, 7). When combined with passages such as Psalms 83 and Daniel 11, the indication is that Egypt will be part of, if not the leader of, this powerful end-time Islamic confederation located geographically south of Jerusalem.

As Tirhakah’s story illustrates, Egypt and Ethiopia have occasionally been under the same government. When one considers the story of Tirhakah’s rule over consolidated peoples, and understands that the ethnicities mentioned in Daniel 11 and Psalms 83 include the Egyptians, Ethiopians (modern Cushites predominantly south of Egypt), Libyans, Edomites, etc., the Bible’s warnings that this entire region will again rally around a strong leader just as it did under Tirhakah nearly 2500 years ago become easily understandable.

The Church of God has proclaimed for decades that the final King of the South will lead a confederation of Muslim nations located in the Middle East and North Africa into war against the final King of the North. This future King of the South will again) be overwhelmed by this future King of the North.

Watch events in the Middle East! And, please read the Tomorrow’s World articles, The Final Crusade? and “"Conflict Over the ‘City of Peace"” and the detailed booklet, "The Middle East in Prophecy" to better understand how the Middle East will shake the nations just prior to Christ’s return."

Sodom and Gomorrah Revisited: Obama: June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month

Jon Garcia Reports:

As he did last year, Obama today declared June 'Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.'

But this year the announcement comes as Congress began moving to repeal the controversial “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy used by the US military when dealing LGBT service members.

President Obama hailed the Congressional moves, writing in a statement: “Our military is made up of the best and bravest men and women in our nation, and my greatest honor is leading them as Commander-in-Chief. This legislation will help make our Armed Forces even stronger and more inclusive by allowing gay and lesbian soldiers to serve honestly and with integrity. MORE

The U.S. Economic Collapse Top 20 Countdown

The Economic Collapse

So just how bad is the U.S. economy?

Well, the truth is that sometimes it is hard to put into words. We have squandered the great wealth left to us by our forefathers, we have almost totally dismantled the world's greatest manufacturing base, we have shipped millions of good jobs overseas and we have piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of mankind. We have taken the greatest free enterprise economy that was ever created and have turned it into a gigantic house of cards delicately balanced on a never-ending spiral of paper money and debt.

For decades, all of this paper money and debt has enabled us to enjoy the greatest party in the history of the world, but now the bills are coming due and the party is nearly over.

In fact, things are already so bad that you can pick almost every number and find a corresponding statistic that shows just how bad the economy is getting.

You doubt it?

Well, check this out....

Obama Scene of the Crime

Lame Cherry

B. Hussein Obama is now working with Islamists for the destruction of the State of Israel. This blog warned that a nuclear confrontation was going to occur sooner or later and now it is simmering beyond Iran...

"B. Hussein Obama could have diffused this entire situation by sending in C-130 transports and pressuring Turkey not to send this flotilla into confront the Jews. Instead he signed off on this covert Islamic operation, and now it has nuclear Israel pitted against nuclear Turkey.

As this blog warned, the Jews might now face the Turkish Navy as it attempts to run the terrorist blockade into Gaza.
Egypt has currently opened the border into Gaza creating an immense insurrection zone as Islamists inflame this situation.

The Jews can not allow any of this to take place and if a Turkish action does take place, Mr. Obama has just destroyed NATO, and it is past time that Ed Koch and the liberal Jews figure out that their Mr. Obama now has an American nuclear armed Turkish Islamic state facing American ally of Israel with nuclear arms.

When the Jews are forced to fire upon the Turkish military as they were forced by this first flotilla mob of Islamists, then NATO treaties kick in and B. Hussein Obama with all NATO will be a war with Jews and be forced to respond in their destruction.

Does not anyone get the holocaust point in this besides what has been warned here, not just for Jews, but for the Philistines in Gaza?..."
